When I found out that lemon, along with ice, is a great way to entice children with Down Syndrome to drink, I decided to borrow an idea from a good friend for lemon ice cubes.
Living in Florida, I’m fortunate to have a lemon tree in my backyard. However, you can certainly use store-bought lemons for this project. I purchased a juicer at one of the big box stores, and enjoyed every second of extracting tangy drops from the beautiful yellow fruit.
After juicing about 12 lemons, I poured the juice into ice cube trays and placed them in the freezer.
Although designed to encourage Harrison to drink water, I love the lemon ice cubes in my own drinks. Ironically, Harrison even grabbed my cup one day and drank the lemon water on his own (a big feat for a little man who won’t even consider drinking from anything but a bottle).
Keep in mind, this trick works great with limes too, so I imagine they will be quite tasty in my summer sangria.
